Not Able to setup the Rancher K8s cluster using RKE

I am trying to setup 3 node cluster with RKE (all controlplane, all worker and all etcd plane) with below things:

  1. Docker version is 20.10.x
  2. RKE version is v1.2.8
    3 RHEL 8.2 OS
  3. A super user with sudo privilage on all three nodes and ssh_key pair copied in the home directory of the user (ssh-copy-id)
  4. VM’s are provisioned in Azure Infrastructure

Below is my cluster.yml file setup (i am hiding the here
[username@Rancher-VM ~]$ rke config --name cluster.yml

10.0.1.14 i want to create as master and other two IP’s as worker.
There is passwordless ssh from 10.0.1.14 to 15/16 but reverse is not there, could it be the reason for the same

Please suggest

A redacted cluster.yml and the full log of rke up (or at least the beginning part where the connection is made and where it shows the error for 10.0.1.14 would help here. If you are using the exact same image with the exact same configuration, then there is already something going on as that can’t possibly happen (if they are all 100% identical)

Hi Suberseb,

Please find the detailed cluster.yaml file post creation:

Please suggest.

This is another error at the end, there is more going on here.

The SSH error should be able to be debugged by checking the SSH daemon logs on the OS, compare the logs when you login manually versus when you run rke up to see why the SSH daemon is not accepting the connection.

The error around etcd cluster is unhealthy can have a number of reasons, running rke up without the correct cluster.rkestate can do this (especially because it says bad certificate), but running docker logs etcd on the affected nodes will reveal more info. This log line also reveals you probably didn’t have the cluster.rkestate present when you ran rke up:

Hi SuperSeb,

i was able to identify the issue :slight_smile:
Issue was with the passwordless ssh on the master node itself as other worker nodes were able to connect without the password.
Post copying the public ssh key to authorized_key of the user on the master node, i was able to bring the cluster up successfully…

However, if possible i would request you to please have this added in the Documentation.

Thanks for the Support
Ankit
